My setup is working. I'm the one that said my setup did not work with
the Ubuntu myth binaries, but works with SVN build. I am using kernel
188.8.131.52. I built from the SVN fixes tree. Here's the version info:
Library API version: 0.20.20060828-3
Source code version: 12982
Options compiled in:
linux release using_v4l using_oss using_alsa using_arts using_ivtv
using_dbox2 using_hdhr using_ip_rec using_freebox using_live
using_lirc using_joystick_menu using_x11 using_xv using_xrandr
